Nice to hear I have yet to play this game though.

Sizzon1582d ago

The game is great, very good story :)

sengoku1582d ago

Great game indeed. not much replay value, but because of different endings you can replay a few times though

story is cool though nice little addition to the collection

guitarded771582d ago

I'm glad it made a profit... it gives publishers incentive to take chances with creative games like these.

egidem1582d ago


If you want something different from the typical shooter filled genre this has been, I highly recommend this game then. It's a great game.

irepbtown1582d ago

Great game.

It is definitely an incentive for devs to take risks, and we see it with Beyond Two Souls. Another stunning looking game, and I'm sure it will do well.

Square Enix + Eidos should attend a class from Sony + QD to learn a thing or two about budgeting!

Yea bro this is a classic game, the music the story, the options., my my the options...Its damn near perfect. Hurry and play this game so you can say the same.

Pintheshadows1582d ago

My only negative when I played it was some of the voice acting. Mainly the children.

uncharted561582d ago

Its one of the better games of this generation for sure. A must play if you enjoy a good story plus you can do multiple playthroughs, since there are multiple endings and at least some characters can die off based on the choices made. But yeah I wont say it is a classic though as the guy above me put it.

Reverent1582d ago

@Pin, yeah the children voice acting could have definitely been better, but the other 99% of the game is still incredible.

minimur121582d ago


voice acting with kids is never usualy that good unfortunately xD

telltales the walking dead- Clementine :|

SilentNegotiator1582d ago

"voice acting with kids is never usualy that good unfortunately"

Except they'll usually be native to the language that they're speaking.

AKS1581d ago


I'm not sure I understood your comment. The actress who did Clementine's voice is around 36 or 37 I believe, and she was quite good.

It's certainly possible to get good voice acting performances out of children. Miyazaki, Takahata, and others from Studio Ghibli seem to manage it consistently.

I'm part of the $100+ million it made; one of the best games I've played in a long time, and very different to.

Nerdmaster1582d ago

Do play it. It was the reason why I bought my PS3 and it was worth it.

TheTwelve1582d ago

My second favorite game this gen! (Behind Uncharted 2)

Clover9041582d ago

Play it! You can get the game relatively cheap. There are plenty of choices that change the ending drastically. Anyone can play and enjoy it. Both my girlfriend (who never plays games) and I played through our own campaigns, and it was a blast just talking about how different our endings were. Truly a unique experience and well worth the purchase. You're missing out on a true gem.

xbox fans will say it sells less than halo but why would sony care after this?

Wow great returns on this games.

Love that sony will fund non traditional games and not just another shooter.

insomnium21581d ago (Edited 1581d ago )

"xbox fans will say it sells less than halo but why would sony care after this? "

Yeah they say that since the games only sell like 1-2 million they are worthless. I don't know what to say to that really. It just makes me feel sorry for said fans.

The best thing is when xfans say that MS gives them the usual 3 games and since they all sell well that must be the thing that people want. The worst cases even call Sony stupid to fund so many games that "noone cares about" since you know 2 million people is like noone.....yeah...

loulou1581d ago

unnecessary fanboy drivel there... you both totally deserve the 1 bubble that you both have!

i never played this, but my gf really enjoyed it

andibandit1581d ago


Was just waiting for that fanboy comment,

Congrats on dragging MS Xbox and Halo into this......

MikeMyers1581d ago

What does Xbox fans have to do with this topic? Nothing. Like the others have mentioned, get a life. You contribute nothing to the community other than your resentment Microsoft has eaten into Sony's once dominated market.

Heavy Rain has shown risks can pay off. That is the focus here. Not your childish antics of always trying to drag the competition into everything. The moderators need to get rid of people instead of just letting them fester at 1 bubble. At that point the community has basically shunned you and now you're essentially talking to yourself because you can't even have a discussion when you're only able to say one thing.

Why o why1582d ago

Some people just take more risks with their dev teams and ip's than others.... In this instance ps3 gamers were the beneficiaries of the risks taken.

bumnut1581d ago

It wasn't that much of a risk, they made Indigo Prophecy/Fahrenheit first and that was great too.

user76939581582d ago

they won it!
BEYOUND! day one..
and if it comes for the PS4 i will ot mind waiting few months for it.

miyamoto1582d ago (Edited 1582d ago )

The greater the risk the greater the reward.

No wonder Sony has backed up Quanticdream's ambitions because they both have the balls to make new and different types of games.
Ever so daring, they are always at the front line of the cutting edge.

They know what they are doing for very niche games to get done and earn good business at the same time.

Unlike the the other two who refuse change and settle for more of the same.

PlayStation is gaming quality at its best.

brodychet1582d ago (Edited 1582d ago )


....SHAUN???????? SHAUN! (dude never stops losing his kids)

Minato-Namikaze1582d ago

nobody said he was a good parent, lol

BABY-JEDI1582d ago

I'm really surprised. It's a great (& mature) game that deals with difficult & challenging themes. Also the gameplay style is not to everyone's taste. But I'm really pleased that HR has been so successful. I look forward to their next release....

saimcheeda1582d ago

I've played the demo and it was great but I cant find a copy of this game in any stores here!

showtimefolks1582d ago (Edited 1582d ago )

I bought the directors cut after buying the regular at launch

This one is a keeper for sure must play a very underrated game of this gen

Alan wake
Heavy rain
Binary domain
Spec ops the line

4 very under rated games of this gen

I may also add yakuza series on ps3 on this list too

Tr10wn1582d ago

Great game is my favorite PS3 exclusive.
